Ask Granny’s Top Tips for Toys, Gifts, Games & What’s On at Christmas Time


  • Fun and Easy Christmas and Birthday Games for Children of all Ages for that Special Party Event.
  • The Christmas season is so busy and hectic that you may not want to plan any parties with games in the month of December. But what about the grandchild with a December birthday or how about some fun games to play over the holidays when the whole family is gathered together? Here is a list of well-known games with a Christmas twist that will be easy enough for the youngest toddler and yet fun for the older children and adults as well.
  • Try the Frosty Snowball Toss using marshmallows or enjoy the Fill the Christmas Stocking relay for some hearty laughs and a multi-generational winner. For some grandparents the holidays are times to capitalize on time with the family. If you are far away from your loved ones this holiday, send them the items needed to play one of these games as part of your Christmas package. There is more than one way to be a beloved and active part of the family!
